The Center for the Arts Evergreen presents around 12 exhibitions in our gallery space every year. Most of our exhibitions are juried group shows, however we sometimes invite artists or art groups to exhibit in our space. CAE hosts an Annual High School Art Show in our gallery every spring. We also have a CAE Members Show every year, which is one of the benefits of becoming a member. We also coordinate two satellite gallery spaces at the Rotary Gallery, which is the lobby at Center/Stage, and Buchanan Rec Center on their main level. The satellite galleries are typically reserved for individual artists to show their artwork.

Visit the Center for the Arts Evergreen between June 7 and June 27 to walk among the winning bird photographs from this year's Audubon Photography Awards. Several workshops and events are scheduled throughout the month featuring professional photographers, artists and birders sharing their expertise and enthusiasm for wildlife art. See our events page to register for one of the great programs associated with the exhibit. http://www.evergreenarts.org/events

Selected from more than 5,500 entries, the winning photos show birdlife at its most visible, vulnerable, formidable, and elegant. Photographers from 49 states and eight Canadian provinces submitted images in three categories: professional, amateur, and youth.

Jonathan Nicklow: A Decade of Printmaking
July 13, 2018 to August 25, 2018
Opening: July 13, 4-7pm
CAE Gallery
Exploring the idea of the multiple in printmaking, Jonathan Nicklow works outside of the margin of the edition, using traditional and mix media printmaking methods in prints, sculpture, and installation. His work considers society's developmental impact on the natural world, the human condition, and fairytales. His art is in constant progress, allowing him to build and discover different layers of meaning and new developments. Each work Jonathan creates leads him towards a different direction but always concerned with the same themes. His art is a conversation through visual poetics allowing duality, language play, and the accumulation of his developing iconography.

Jonathan received his BFA in Painting at Savannah College of Art and Design and his MFA in Printmaking at the University of Colorado, Boulder. His art has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is included in many collections around the world, including the Germany, Argentina, and the Smithsonian Institute. He currently teaches at Metro State University. Jonathan and his wife have lived in Evergreen for over twenty years, along with their two cats and dog, Luna.
